Snakes on a Plane kicks all the ass there is to kick.”


So says my friend Tricia.

But I can’t write that in my official CJ review. So, here’s my real review of Snakes on a Plane, the best movie I’ve seen since Clerks II, which (incidentally) also kicks a lot of ass.

Snakes on a Plane is more than a movie. It’s a phenomenon. Everyone must see Snakes on a Plane. Also, everyone should visit Snakes on a Blog (warning: there are spoilers) and the official Snakes on a Plane website, featuring the personalized phone call from Samuel L. Jackson telling everyone to go see Snakes on a Plane, because “it might just be the most important film ever made.”

And, in addition to the blogs and websites, there are also the T-shirts. Some state simply “SoaP.” Others prove the mathematical concept that snakes plus a plane is very bad. Not to be outdone, some just quote Sam Jackson’s most famous line from the movie, “Enough is enough! I have had it with these MFin’ snakes on this MFin’ plane!” Of course, he doesn’t use the PC abbreviations.

The actual movie experience is kind of like a cross between The Rocky Horror Picture Show and seeing a really campy Broadway musical. Every time someone says a memorable line, the whole audience applauds, despite the fact that the actors can’t appreciate it. Some people cheer for the snakes. Others shout warnings to the unfortunate passengers as they are about to be viciously attacked by pheromone-crazed pit vipers. It's definitely the most interactive movie I've ever seen that doesn't involve crossdressing. Then, to top it off, there's a music video.

Snakes on a Plane has it all: sarcasm, drama, humor, blood, Samuel L. Jackson at his badass best, and of course, snakes. Go see it. Immediately. You should take off work. Before I tell you how they finally get rid of the snakes.

I've also heard several great things about the film...haven't seen it yet..but I'm thinking for a party I'm throwing this weekend to have everyone get drunk and then go see it at the theater...sounds like fun to me anyway!
 
Be careful or she might sign you up for a call from Samuel L. Jackson....

Hmm... that drunken event reminds me of a phone call I got the other night....

;-)
 
I need to get my MFin butt to the theater to see those MFin snakes!
 
It might just be the most important thing you ever do.
 
Damn MFin straight biotch
 
Here's the funniest thing I've seen regarding SOaP. This is an excerpt from a Sam Jackson Q&A secession at Comicon ala Bryan Caplan.

Audience Member: But is the behavior of the snakes at all... realistic? Is that really what snakes on a plane would do?

Jackson: Are you high? Because we asked every [expletive] snake expert in the world, and every [expletive] one of them said that this is EXACTLY what snakes on a plane would do!

Nice post student! Jackson's my hero....hehe. i could just see him doing that scene out of Chasing Amy at the comic convention, with him playing Hooper X.
